Wan Fung Art Gallery is a private art museum which opens to the public for free since 1986 in Hong Kong, covering an area of 20,000 square feet. As we all know, many commercial buildings are located in TaiKoo Place. We usually get there for work. Have you ever imagine that there is a hidden palace of art inside? Step into Wan Fung Art Gallery, you will feel as jumping back into the time tunnel. Marvelous ancient Chinese palace, art furnishings are right there in front of you. Wan Fung Art Gallery proudly presents to you the ‘Royal Garden·Art Prints Exhibition’ from 18 January - 6 February, 2013 in Hong Kong Wan Fung Art Gallery.
This exhibition will showcase the masterpieces in ancient and modern times, including ‘Riverside Scene at Qingming Festival’ by Zhang Ze-duan from the Northern Song era, Chiu Ying from Ming Dynasty and from National Palace Museum, Taipei. These masterpieces show the cityscape and social life in these three dynasties. There are nearly 200 paintings from Tang, Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasty which are available for us to see the greatest artistic achievements in its two thousand years of history in China. As most of the original artworks are being collected by cross-strait national museums, we can seldom see more at one time. Therefore, Wan Fung specially organizes this art prints exhibition in order to reproduce the elegance of a number of ancient and modern art masters. Art lovers can feel so close to the charm of the Chinese national treasures. The ancient Chinese painting and calligraphy is undoubtedly the most precious cultural heritage in China. However, it is extremely difficult to save these works in a good quality in long term. As a result, many rare collections are not easily exhibited to the public. The emergence of high-precision replication technology allows us to save the original elegance of the ancient and modern paintings these years. The quality of these art prints is not only comparable to the original one; the colors even can be stored for centuries, which become the ideal home decorations of art lovers.
To take the national treasures home is no longer a distant dream. One of the greatest pleasures in life is relax and talk about art in a friendly environment with friends. Royal Garden·Art Prints Exhibition, a show not to be missed.
